ToneMonkey Posted March 30, 2009 Report Share Posted March 30, 2009 Alrighty gents, It's one of those thikngs that's been keeping me up at night, so thought I'd ask you lot. One day, when I get round to building a new acoustic I've been thinking about whether it's possible to put an arm contor on like a strat. As far as I know it's not been done (probably for a good reason). My acoustic is a super jumbo (one of these fat boys http://www.tanglewoodguitars.co.uk/product...mp;view=search) and I love the shape but it's a right bugger to play for any period of time as it's just so bloody big. I'd need slightly larger sides to accomodate the contor and would need to trim it all down level after I've bent it, but in theory, do you think the wood would be able to handle it? I also know that binding would be an issue, but I once saw an acoustic with no binding on it and it looked really good, so that's that issue out of the way.
